||This undated, multifold brochure from the Sacramento Chamber of Commerce contains fifteen views and scenes of the city and the surrounding area when hotels now long-demolished were brand new, the city ran on electricity and horsepower and Fair Oaks and Orangevale were still farms and orchards. The Sacramento Transportation Company played a large part in keeping produce and people moving up and down the Sacramento Valley and beyond in the years prior to World War II.
